Books can make you laugh, take you on an adventure, and teach you something…sometimes all in one. Here are some great kids books that you should check out! There are some of my family’s absolute favorites. I’m sure you’ll notice a bit of a trend, however, if you’re a parent you’ll understand if you’ve had kids that are 4 and 6.
You’ll notice that Pete the Cat is by far a big favorite. He’s funny, entertaining and there’s always a good lesson behind his stories which I love. “The Book With No Pictures” is a must for every child I think.
